One of the more beguiling modern lighting introductions at ICFF this year was the Marset Dipping Light, feted with a Metropolis magazine award for notable designs unveiled during New York Design Week (NYCxDesign). Designed by the Barcelona-based product designer Jordi Canudas, this sweet and colorful table lamp was easily one of the more Instagram-worthy of the many innovative lighting designs exhibited in New York, it's lollipop-like form proving irresistible as both a beautiful object and a functional modern lamp.
The Dipping Light makes inventive use of two basic volumes—a sphere and a cylinder—by giving its globular diffuser a gradient of bright color, a coating that's arrived at by repeatedly dipping the glass globe in paint, encircling the sphere in a series of graduated color bands. Six hues—hot pink, bright green, black, cobalt blue, amber, and white—comprise Dipping Light's color range, each color bringing its own specific nuance to the quality of light dispersed. The lamp's base, a simple, brushed brass cylinder, provides a material contrast to the colorful diffuser, but firmly remains the supporting player in this modern lighting composition. Expected to be available later this year, the Marset Dipping Light, will be released in two sizes, making it amenable to a wider range of applications.
